Hey guys! As promised, I have now ended the build contest poll and have picked out the winning contest! We had a total of 1,297 votes at the time of writing.

And in first place, we had mob/animal zoos with a huge amount of 402 votes! This makes it the biggest build contest theme by a long shot!

So, for this build contest, what you will need to do is build a really cool zoo that houses mobs and animals! If you want to stand a good chance at winning this event, think carefully about how you will display the animals. Because it’s a zoo, you could build enclosures for each of the animals or the mobs to make the zoo look better!

On top of building enclosures, you could think of making walkways, shops and entrances so customers can enter the zoo! The best designs will make the zoo feel like a real area, instead of just a collection of animal enclosures.

The full rules can be seen below.

YOU HAVE TIL TUESDAY 9th SEPTEMBER!

Please make sure your design is based on the zoo theme!

Please send your designs to submissions@minecraftpecheats.com!

Hey guys! FireQuartz has just found a really cool mesa biome seed and I thought I would share it with you all today! As you probably know by now, mesa biome’s aren’t all that special in Minecraft Pocket Edition, and whilst they are fairly rare, we’ve shown you plenty of mesa seeds now that we all know what they look like. However, sometimes you come across a mesa biome that looks extra cool, and that is certainly the case for this seed. Check it out below!

Seed name: HookHasAClimbingObsession

In the picture shown below, you can see exactly where you spawn in this seed. You start in a forest that takes up a large amount of land and continues on into the horizon, however right in front of you there is a massive mesa biome right behind the river. The biome itself has some pretty large mountains in, but with a bit of exploring you’ll be able to find some awesome areas within the biome!

The first thing you may notice about this biome is that there is a few trees growing on top of the mesa hills. Trees can’t grow in the mesa, but here there are small patches of other biomes that are sticking out of the mesa, and that is why there are trees growing here. It’s pretty cool, and it means you can still collect wood whilst exploring this area.

In the picture shown below, you can see exactly why I like this biome so much! There is a clearing which has a ring of mesa stones going around it, and within the clearing there is a small circular lake. This could be a really nice place to build some kind of structure or some ancient ruins.

Hey guys! If you have played Minecraft on the PC, you may be aware of craftable boats – they are the same size of a mine cart, but they can be used to travel across areas of water. They have been in the PC version of Minecraft for ages now, but they have never made it to Minecraft Pocket Edition. That may all change in the near future though; on a stream, the developers working on Minecraft Pocket Edition did mention that they planned to release boats at some point, although their plans for when were unclear.

So, although it’s unlikely we will see boats for quite a while, I wanted to talk about the feature, and talk about how call it would be to be able to have boats in MCPE!

How to build a boat

1

In Minecraft for the PC, building a boat is quite easy. In fact, all you need to do is to go to a crafting table and use five wood planks. In the picture shown above, the layout for the boat can be seen, although in Pocket Edition all you would need to do is find the boat item once you have five blocks in your inventory.

Once you have built a boat, you can place it on the water as if you were placing a mine cart, and you can then get in it and sail off!

The pro’s of owning a boat

2

There are a few reasons why owning a boat can be useful. Firstly, using a boat means you can get across water quicker – this is incredibly handy when you find yourself having to cross a large ocean to find more land. On top of being able to travel quicker across water, riding on a boat is safer. There’s no chance of drowning, and it’s hard to be attacked by mobs or other players.

Be warned though, if your boat takes damage, it could break, and then you will be stranded in the middle of the ocean!

Would you like to see boats in MCPE?

Hey guys! I read through your comments from the post yesterday, and as promised today I have picked out the best suggestions and created a poll for you all! Now all you need to do is vote in the poll, and we can then find out which contest you guys want the most tomorrow.

This poll is for the build contest – a challenge that you will have two weeks to complete. Within these two weeks you must create a design based around the theme that the community has chosen for that build contest.

Once you have created your design, you can take screenshots of it and send it to our submissions email, which is submissions@minecraftpecheats.com. There are certain rules and guidelines you should follow for the chance of winning the challenge, and I’ll go into more detail about those tomorrow.

For now though, all you need to do is vote for what theme you’d like the next build contest to be! There were a lot of different suggestions, and in fact we had close to 300 different comments suggesting different ideas for the build contest! I saw a lot of the same choices posted again and again by different people, so I thought it would be good to add these to the poll.
